Half Circle Wrap Scarf: Beginner Friendly Crochet Pattern
"The Cloud Wrap is a half circle shape worked from a center point outward in rows. That means you won’t join each row, and your stitches will increase with every new row you add! This is a beginner friendly crochet pattern because only basic stitches are used: Chain, single and double crochet. These basic stitches are worked in very simple repeats, creating a light and lacy open stitch fabric. Because there are repeating sections of crochet stitches, you’ll notice that a few repeat symbols are used to work the half circle pattern instructions: Bracket, asterisk. Crocheters will absolutely love the half circle shape of this design; it’s a versatile style that can be worn in a few different ways: Bundled up around the neck, like a scarf. On top of the head, like a hood. Wrapped or loosely draped around the shoulders, like a shawl. This pattern gives instructions for just one size, but the repeating rows can be worked as many (or as few) times as you like to make any size and dimensions that you choose. If you’re unsure of the style, fit, or feel that you want to create, you can simply try on the fabric as you go until you are absolutely satisfied. This Cloud Wrap is a great design to crochet because: You can use yarn you already have on hand – I absolutely recommend trying the two yarns suggested in the pattern, however this design can easily be worked in a yarn fiber, size, and color of your choice! Wraps, shawls, and scarves are one-size-fits all designs, so they make great gifts! The bigger these projects get the more yarn they use, so this can be a great stash-buster! You will finally be able to use that gorgeous, super-soft, luxury yarn you’ve been saving for the perfect project – this is it! You’ll get to practice a lot of crochet skills: Yarn and color choice, increasing rows, simple stitch and row repeats, shaping, one-piece projects that can be adjusted in size, finishing techniques & more!"
